[Bestbuy618 Mobile Channel] The Samsung S and Note series have always had excellent photography performance, and the Samsung Galaxy S10 released this year is no exception. The Samsung Galaxy S10 has a triple rear camera with a 12-megapixel telephoto lens, a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens, and a 16-megapixel ultra wide-angle lens. Although there are some gaps in the parameters when compared to other flagships, Samsung’s strength demonstrates that “parameters don’t mean everything” (here @ Apple iPhone and Google Pixel).
Samsung’s rear camera has an intelligent variable aperture and a super anti-shake mode, allowing the phone to perform well in low light and video shooting. The screen on the Samsung Galaxy S10 is also “eye-catching” in comparison to other products.
Perhaps Samsung is one of the few brands that can enhance its phone’s photo effects through the screen, but the effect is slightly different when other people in your circle of friends see the pictures you send out. In fact, I’ve been using the Samsung Galaxy S10 for quite some time and am very pleased with its photo performance. But, because of the unique nature of this “journey,” I discovered that the arrival of the “ultra-wide angle” lens allows smartphones to take pictures with a larger field of view, and its usefulness deserves to be recognized!
Conquer large scenes There is no doubt that one of the main battlegrounds of ultra-wide angle photography is “large scenes.” In other words, the addition of an ultra-wide angle lens improves the phone’s ability to master large scenes, bringing out the full sense of openness and boundlessness. Let us begin by sending three sets of sample photos taken with the Samsung Galaxy S10. The first set was taken on the cross-sea bridge, and if shot with a standard wide-angle lens, we can see the skyline in the distance, but the entire scene lacks that unique extension. Switching to an ultra-wide angle lens in nearly the same location is a completely different story; photos taken in ultra-wide angle mode can see clouds in the sky and waves on the beach “naturally” approaching the center of the photo, which is the sense of visual extension easily achieved by a wide-angle lens.
Simultaneously, the wider frame creates a more realistic sense of the sea and sky meeting in the distance. The blurred highway guardrail captured by the wide-angle lens also adds a sense of “movement” to the bottom of the photo.
However, if you feel that the overall sense of the picture is off, you can adjust the angle when shooting, or crop out in post (this will be the next point we will discuss the second advantage of ultra-wide angle lens – composition).
The second set of samples demonstrates the unique sense of extension provided by the ultra-wide angle lens, particularly if you like to shoot the sky “wilderness,” while the third sample differs from the first two and is a different type of “big scene.” If only the buildings in the photo were completed, the photo would look monotonous, but with the ultra-wide angle lens, the sky is successfully added and the oppressive feeling of the approaching clouds is better reflected. Because the phone has a super wide-angle lens, we can more easily shoot a “blockbuster,” while also having more composition and post-production options.
A new attempt at composition The main body of a clear photo can only be said to be a qualified photo; if you want to take excellent photos, then understanding composition is a must. Previously limited by the phone lens combination, we can only “curve to save the country” in some scenes, such as not being able to include the entire scene, then zoom in on the details. Although there may be surprises, there is always the feeling that something is missing.
An ultra-wide angle lens can encompass more scenery, providing a “large format,” which means you have more room for adjustment in post-production for the same angle, similar composition. When taking photos, on the other hand, you can already be “creative.” In this set of samples, for example, if there is no wide-angle lens, we can try to shoot close up, macro, and record the clover hanging with the morning dew, but once you have a super wide angle, you can record the original jungle under the cover of dense large clover, the sense of hierarchy, and picture tension completely different styles.
There is no reason for users who enjoy cell phone photography to pass up this opportunity!
It was difficult to capture a tens of meters tall tree “in its entirety” in the narrow jungle, but the ultra wide angle lens apparently did not think so. With the ultra-wide angle mode, we can not only capture the “back story” of the tens of meters tall tree, but also the canopy of the tree is not beyond the frame and is captured “in its entirety.” Also in the jungle, dense trees are a great background to present a sense of visual extension, walking in the jungle and looking up will find the sky is divided by the leaves, branches, and trunks, each person is very small. This “dense, towering” feeling will be greatly diminished if shot with a standard lens.
But now it’s the turn of the ultra-wide angle lens, as all the trees try to “grow” toward the center of the picture, in your head to build a wooden house. You’ll notice that not only the vast sky, grasslands, sea, and other “big scenes” require ultra-wide angle, but jungle, urban, and other scenes are also ideal stages for ultra-wide angle lens to play a good role. Of course, in some cases, even “close up,” an ultra-wide angle lens is required.
Close up ultra wide angle Close up should not focus on magnifying the details or highlighting the level, ultra-wide angle can do what? If not for the ultra-wide angle lens, at such a close distance, the edge of the tree trunk could not even be photographed while shooting the palm of my hand, after all, the length of my arm is limited…with the ultra-wide angle lens, this problem can be easily solved.
Or perhaps you find a city model at the airport and also require ultra-wide angle… Of course, the three points I mentioned above are only a small portion of the ultra-wide angle application examples, and there is still a lot of room for you to explore. The reason I chose to introduce the Samsung Galaxy S10 ultra-wide angle for smartphones to improve is because of the phone’s strong photo performance; after all, ultra-wide angle is not “independent,” there are two other partners, and it is these cameras that collaborate to make cell phone photography more interesting.
Furthermore, the phone’s current ultra-wide angle lens is not “invincible,” as edge stretching, distortion, and other issues persist. However, cell phone manufacturers have attempted to solve these issues through AI and other technical means to make photos more natural and beautiful, which we as users are naturally very excited about! (PS: wide angle lens stretch distortion, if the use of reasonable is not lost as a plus.)
